Sarkozy will WIN!

So, Sarko survived the first round of voting, but I'm guessing that's only because the majority of French people did not want to see far-right candidate, Marine Le Pen, advance to the next round. And even though I asked all our friends who voted for Sarko if they planned on voting for him again in the second round (and they all said, 'non'!) I'm predicting that Sarkozy will WIN by a razor thin margin. Know why? Because the conservatives who voted for Le Pen are going to pick the LESSER of TWO evils and that means Sarkozy over Hollande. Unless they decide to do what Americans do when their candidate doesn't win the nomination of the party: stay home on election day.

So long, Sarko!

With the French Presidential election about a month away, its looking more and more like Nicolas Sarkozy (or Sarko as he is affectionately known in French pop culture lexicon) is NOT gonna get re-elected, which is too bad because we really like Sarko. His was the first Presidential election we were witness to, since moving to France. On a related note, I'm guessing right about now Madame Carla Bruni-Sarkozy is thinking: 'How long before I can file for divorce from this dude? Because, let's face it, when I married him, he was the President of France, but if he loses this election, he becomes just a short, ugly old guy. I'm way too hot to be married to a short, ugly old guy.' Once Sarko loses the election in May, I'm guessing Madame will file for divorce within six months.
